Jamaican Mango & Lime FAQ

Do you have any products that help with itch, irritation or dryness?

We recommend our Jamaican Mango & Lime NO MORE ITCH GRO SPRAY for minor itching and dry scalp. If irritation is more frequent, try Jamaican Mango & Lime NO MORE ITCH MENTHOLATED GRO SPRAY. This will help moisturize and soothe your itchy dry scalp, while helping to prevent breakage. To seal in the moisture, lightly coat the scalp with Jamaican Mango & Lime ISLAND OIL.

Can I use Jamaican Mango & Lime MANGO & SHEA BUTTER LOTION on my hair?

Our lotion is designed to specifically moisturize your body. It should not be used on hair.

How often should I shampoo and condition my locs?

We recommend washing your locs with Jamaican Mango & Lime TINGLE SHAMPOO and PROTEIN CONDITIONER approximately every 2-4 weeks. It may be more beneficial to allow new hair growth to mature before washing.

How can I prevent buildup?

You can minimize build-up by choosing quality products to effectively cleanse the hair and scalp without stripping the hair’s essential moisture each time you shampoo your hair. For a fresh and clean feel in between shampoos, we recommend using Jamaican Mango & Lime HAIR N’ CENSE spray.

Can locs cause balding?

On their own, locs have not been proven to cause balding or hair thinness. Speaking with a professional Loctician is always recommended to assist with growing and managing your locs.

What products should I use to start my locs?

For coarser hair, we recommend using Jamaican Mango & Lime RESISTANT FORMULA LOCKING GEL. All other hair textures can begin with Jamaican Mango & Lime LOCK & SET STYLING LOTION & Jamaican Mango & Lime LOCKING GEL.

How often should I re-twist my hair?

Depending on the rate of your hair growth, re-twist approximately every 4 weeks. When re-twisting your hair, always make sure your hair is moist. Use Jamaican Mango & Lime LOCKING CRÈME WAX to help incorporate new growth into your locs. Jamaican Mango & Lime LOCKING FIRM WAX is recommended for coarser hair.

If I cut my locs, will they unravel?

No, locs are sections of matted hair and will not unravel if they’re cut or trimmed.

Can I remove locs?

Yes, locs can be taken out. Be advised, the process is tedious and time-consuming. Locs are formed when hair is matted together, so it may be very challenging to unravel locs. Many have chosen to do the “Big Chop” in order to start over. Seek the advice of a Loctician to learn the options of loc removal.

What type of products should I use for daily loc maintenance?

Jamaican Mango & Lime has many products for daily loc maintenance. Jamaican Mango & Lime LOCK GRO is a stimulating scalp treatment that revitalizes hair follicles. Jamaican Mango & Lime ISLAND OIL is a blend of essentials oils with an applicator nozzle that allows you to apply the oil to tight areas to help provide nourishment to the scalp. Jamaican Mango & Lime SPROIL SPRAY strengthens, protects and conditions locs. Jamaican Mango & Lime SHEA BUTTER CONDITIONING SHINE protects and gives hair a radiant shine.

How do I begin my loc journey?

Making the decision to loc your hair is embracing an ongoing commitment. We recommend visiting a Loctician to get professional advice on how to start locs based on your specific hair texture. If you want to do your own locs, make sure you do the proper research.

How long does my hair have to be to start locs?

Depending on your hair texture, generally 3 to 5 inches.

What other ways can the Jamaican Mango & Lime products be used for?
